Congo Bars I

Reviewed: May 25, 2006
I really wanted to like this recipe, I was hoping to add it to my catering menu. It was easy to make and only took a few minutes, but I didn't care for the final product. When I read that they were chewy I was expecting the texture of a fresh baked Toll House cookie, but that isn't the case. These are chewy the way caramel is chewy. The taste wasn't bad, just not what I was hoping for. To sum it up, my expert cookie tasters (my kids) didn't even ask for seconds.

Best Brownies

Reviewed: Apr. 12, 2006
I hate to be the exception, but I didn't care for the texture of these at all. The flavor was fine, but they have an odd, spongy texture.

Snicky Snackies

Reviewed: Dec. 20, 2005
If I made this again I would stop cooking the caramel mixture sooner. I think 260 degrees is too high. The mixture becomes thicker than it should be which makes it very difficult to coat all the pretzels and nuts. The taste is ok, no one raved.

Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Chewy

Reviewed: Sep. 15, 2005
These are very good and remind me of the "Magic Bars" you make with sweetened, condensed milk. I, too, baked them at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. As is usually the case with cookie dough containing butter, they tend to spread less while baking if you refrigerate the dough for an hour or so before baking. Thanks Woody!!

Mocha Chocolate Cookies

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2005
I hate to disagree with the other reviews, but I didn't care much for these cookies. I generally love anything mocha flavor, but these had an odd, almost burned taste and they spread like pancakes even after refrigerating the dough for several hours. Not at all pretty to look at. I ended up spreading the remaining dough in a square pan and making bar cookies, which were more attractive.

Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies from Heaven

Reviewed: Aug. 25, 2005
Good, simple to make cookies. The peanut butter flavor is subtle, but very good. I was especially impressed by how they looked. I didn't bother to roll them, but instead spooned them on the cookie sheet and gently pressed down on the tops. They looked just like the cookies in magazine pictures. They taste even better the next day. One word of warning, if, like me, you are a cookie dough junkie, don't even taste this dough or you will never get any cookies baked!! It is as delicious (or maybe more delicious) than the cookies themselves! Tastes like peanut butter fudge.

Charley's Slow Cooker Mexican Style Meat

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2004
I served this last night for an informal get together with friends. It was excellent. Great flavor, but not too spicy. I served it with flour tortillas, shredded lettuce, diced tomato, cheese, salsa, sour cream and red beans and rice. It was so easy to make that my 11 year old son did most of the preparation (I insisted on flipping the roast in the pan when he was browning it). Everyone had seconds, and raved about it. The leftovers were great for lunch today, too. Great recipe, Charley!

Slow Cooker Salisbury Steak

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2004
Everyone in my family loved this recipe! Who knew you could make salibury steak in a slow cooker?! My slow cooker rarely saw the light of day until I found allrecipes. Now I use it all the time because of great recipes like this one. I, too, used low sodium soup and we didn't find it too salty at all. Also, when I divided the meat into 8, I thought the patties were a little too thick so I redivided it into 10 and they were just right.

Awesome Slow Cooker Pot Roast

Reviewed: Oct. 29, 2004
Just like the name says, this recipe is "Awesome"! I used a smaller roast (about 2 1/2 pounds) but kept the other measurements the same. It was tender, juicy and delicious and the gravy was perfect. It didn't require thickening. So simple! Thanks, Brenda!

The Big Sandwich

Reviewed: Oct. 11, 2004
We loved this sandwich! It was a great, fun meal for our traditional Saturday "Movie Night" get-together! I used French bread that had a firm crust, but was very soft inside. For that reason, I had a difficult time slicing it without smashing it. My husband took over and did a much better job. Next time I think I will try Italian bread, but I will definitely make this again. Thumbs up!

Ignacio's Super Peanut Butter and Jelly Sandwich

Reviewed: Sep. 22, 2004
What a fun idea! I made this for my son and I to split for lunch one day and we both thought it was great. Just for kicks, we tried it the opposite way the next day, toasting the outer slices and leaving the middle slice untoasted. That was good too, but Ignacio's way is better. Thanks, Ignacio, for a fun recipe to share with my kids!

Aunt Anne's Coffee Cake

Reviewed: Sep. 18, 2004
Afer I had prepared the topping and the cake batter, I decided that I was going to end up with a very thin coffee cake if I baked it in a 9 x 13 pan. So I buttered a 9 inch square pan, spread half of the batter in the bottom and sprinkled a thin layer of topping over it. Then I added the rest of the batter and covered it with the remaining topping. I baked it for about 40 minutes and it came out perfectly! It is sweet and moist and delicious, with a thin layer of streusel running through the middle. I had it ready to bake in about the time it took my oven to preheat. This is a wonderful recipe for anytime, but especially when you need a dessert in a hurry.

Baked Ziti I

Reviewed: Sep. 17, 2004
Delicious! A lot like lasagna, only without the hassle of lasagna noodles which can be so hard to pull apart. I put this together in the afternoon, covered and refrigerated it and then popped it in the oven about 45 minutes before dinner. The only change I would make is to put a thin layer of sauce on the bottom of the pan before adding the ziti because I thought the bottom layer was a little dry (may be because I refrigerated it). Also, to anyone who is afraid of the sour cream, don't be! It thickens as it bakes and become very much like ricotta, with a slightly different flavor. It's wonderful!

Fabulous Wet Burritos

Reviewed: Sep. 14, 2004
This recipe is destined for the hall of fame! What a delicious and easy meal this was, the whole family loved it. The only changes I made were to leave out the green chilies and serve them on the side so everyone could adjust the heat to their liking. Also, I made all of the burritos, placed them in a large baking pan, and spooned the sauce and cheese over them. Then I put them in a 350 degree oven for about 10 minutes to melt the cheese. I can't say enough good things about this recipe. I only used about half of the sauce (and I didn't skimp), so I saved the remainder for the next time I make this dish. I can guarantee it will be soon! Thanks a bunch, Sydney!!

Banana Crumb Muffins

Reviewed: Sep. 13, 2004
These were good and very easy to make. I made them with the help of my 4 year old daughter. She really enjoyed sprinkling the crumb topping over the muffins. My 11 year old son called them "awesome" and ate two in row.

Flip-Flop Cobbler

Reviewed: Sep. 7, 2004
Delicious and simple! I added a teaspoon of cinnamon and half a teaspoon of nutmeg to the peaches and baked for the specified time in an eight inch square pan. It served six people without any leftovers. I think I might double it next time because everyone kept asking if there was any more!

Mom's Great Green Beans

Reviewed: Sep. 2, 2004
I can't believe how much I liked these! I love green beans anyway, but this made them a much more interesting side dish. I disagree with some of the reviews that said they didn't have enough flavor. I think the whole point is that the flavor is subtle so you can still taste the green beans. In my opinion adding extra spices or turning the liquid into a thickened sauce would defeat the purpose. Great recipe, Denise!!

Deadly Delicious Lasagna

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2004
This was really good, but I agree with other reviewers that it makes too much for one pan, and I used an extra large lasagna pan. I could probably have made another smaller lasagna with the leftover filling, but the extra noodles kept shredding when I tried to pull them apart. Instead I chose to save the filling to make stuffed shells or manicotti.

Toasted Garlic Bread

Reviewed: Sep. 1, 2004
Excellent recipe! I made it without the cheese because we were having it with lasagna and I thought the additional cheese would be overkill. This would be a great spread for making croutons, too, because that's what the taste reminds me of. Thanks, Clair, for such a fast, easy and delicious recipe!

White Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Aug. 27, 2004
What an elegant cake! One tip, don't be tempted to use white chocolate chips in place of the squares. They do not melt smoothly as they are made to retain the chip shape while baking in cookies and other baked recipes.
